Subject: Then: Unrest in Middle East. Now: Unrest in Middle East
50s newsreel story about peace talks in the Middle East that were rudely preceded by a bombing at the American embassy. Also included is a story about a large camera designed to track missiles. This is straightforward and unsurprising.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: *. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.

Subject: a general review and a request
I remember growing up with these newsreels. As a child, I would see them usually befroe the car-toon started and sometimes my dad said"this was the only way he got the news when he was my age."
My request are for the sports films. You the boxing films they used to show in theatres. The more the better and maybe some of the old wrestling films AS WELL.
